Les Baer, Thunder Ranch Special, Full size. Hogue grips, Pau Ferro, Double Diamond Rosewood, stippled Hogue grips, Double Diamond, Coco Bolo This is the first time I have ordered 1911 grips panels from Hogue. I am editing this part to...Make sure you check the grip panels prior to actually installing them. Great lookers and the stippling and checkering is some of the best I have seen out there. Just a little disappointed in them. Now, on to the issue: The Pau Ferro Double Diamond Rosewood grips fit perfect! Perfect fit, just tight enough fit to the bushings and no movement. The stippling is outstanding! It is just enough texture to get a great grip purchase and not allow any shift while shooting. Yet it still has a smoothness that won't catch on fabric. Double Diamond Coco Bolo grips have a great texture that mirrors the stippled rosewoods. The main difference is of course the stippling and the difference in grain. These are a bit lighter in color with some very dark grains running vertically through the grip. Now, with the coco bolo grips I noticed that they are a shade thinner then the rosewoods. My problem is, when I put the coco bolos on and tighten down the grips screws there is a tiny bit of movement in the grips. My thought process is: because of the difference in thickness this is causing the problem. Regular sized bushings and screws supplied by Les Baer. Like I said, I can tighten the screws down until they don't turn anymore. But there is still a little bit of play on the grips. The rosewoods don't do this. Anyone have any solutions to the issue? I was thinking maybe some type of washer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
